Tiki Barber Continues To Crash And Burn
I'm not sure anyone has had a bigger fall from grace than Tiki Barber of late. After trashing his Giants teammates last year repeatedly, they showed him up by winning the Super Bowl. And even better, Eli Manning, long the direct recipient of Tiki's scorn, won MVP.
Now, for some reason, Tiki's been put on Olympic Update detail for MSNBC. Thank God I haven't watched a minute of their Olympic coverage, because it's apparently been a complete nightmare. Tiki got teamed up with Jenna Wolfe, and for some reason the two hate each other. Or as The Grand Rapids Press so notably put it: MSNBC's live Olympic update features retired NFLer Tiki Barber with Jenna Wolfe. The two seem to have worse chemistry than Barber and Eli Manning.
Zing! Although that's totally true. How true? Well, this video, courtesy of Awful Announcing makes it pretty clear. In the first clip, Wolfe dogs Tiki for not having a Super Bowl ring. Then, in the second clip, we get to listen to Tiki drop a bomb while the two are having a disagreement on live TV. Yes, I said live TV.
You don't have to listen real hard, that is indeed Tiki saying medal c**t, and if you think that was a slip of the tongue, let me tell you, it definitely wasn't. Wolfe sure doesn't think it was a slip of the tongue judging by her reaction.
And it's not like people haven't noticed this horrible pair on TV. They've been getting ripped by people left and right.
I'm not sure how much worse it can get for Tiki at this point. By next year he'll probably be a janitor. And even that might be too good for him.
